Rovio Enters eBook Business With Angry Birds Cookbook App

Rovio Entertainment, the app developer known for Angry Birds and Bad Piggies, has launched its first eBook. The new cookbook app, Bad Piggies Best Egg Recipes, is based on Rovio’s 2011 cookbook with the same name, but adds interactive features.

The cookbook has 41 egg recipes all illustrated with photos. The app includes a timer that readers can set to go off when their dishes are done, and it has interactive easter eggs that animate the birds and piggies.

“We wanted to create a cookbook that brings a family together to actively do things together with the characters they all love,” explained Peter Vesterbacka CMO of Rovio in a statement. “It’s fully interactive at every stage — from seeing the illustrations come to life to sharing photos with your friends and family.”

The list price for the eBook app is $4.99 but it is currently on sale for $.99.
